Can you imagine a .22LR shooting one minute of angle at 300 yards? I couldn’t either, but I learned a few things I didn’t know from Cole Quarnberg, director of sales and marketing, about the Vudoo Gun Works custom .22LR.
Vudoo Gun Works specializes in full custom, Remington 700 footprint, bolt action firearms chambered in .22 long rifle. Guns like the Ravage are marketed towards the individual who shoots in competitions like the Precision Rifle Series or the National Rifle League or any shooter who wants a high-end bolt action 22. The Ravage would be a great choice for a competitor who wants to train with a gun that’s very similar to their match rig but is far easier on the wallet.
One of the most notable features of Vudoo actions is that they are controlled round feed. Controlled round feeding perfectly centers the cartridge on the bolt face and feeds it precisely into the chamber leaving the bullet untouched. The downside to a push feed style action is that the bullet tip can be easily deformed as it slides up the feed ramp, thereby degrading accuracy downrange. The 22LR bullet is notoriously soft and must be kept in good condition for best results at “long range”.
Another highlight would be the “Remington 700 footprint” I mentioned above. This is important because the Vudoo action and barrel will mount directly into any short action stock or chassis that is designed around the popular Remington 700 bolt action rifle. The Ravage from Vudoo comes standard in a Grayboe stock, but stocks from Manners, Boyd’s, or Magpul will also work. Chassis companies such as Masterpiece arms, MDT, and JP Enterprises make options that fit the Vudoo actions perfectly. The Ravage will accept any Remington 700 clone trigger as well.
